Sally Jean the Bicycle Queen
This book is a fantastic read that takes you through the stages of a bright little girl's love affair with bike riding (starting with a baby seat on her mom's bike!). This girl is so in love with her first bike that she names it-
, of course! Sally Jean's attentive and knowledgeable parents show her how to adjust her handlebars and seat so Flash can grow along with Sally as she gets older. When the day comes that Flash can't be adjusted any further and Sally has grown too big for her beloved bicycle, she has to use her head, and the skills her parents have taught her, to save the day. I love how this strong female character devises a plan, works hard and sticks to a budget! What great lessons for girls and boys alike! Instead of jumping to replace our things, we can take some time to look around and, sometimes, we just might find, we have what we need...
